Is it possible to import images via dataflow by absolute path?  ex. http://somedomain.com/images/someimage123.jpg?

I ask because I’ve got two customers who will have their images hosted elsewhere (vendors) and need to be able to import the image this way instead of going and saving and re--uploading.

I’d like to also know if there is a way to import images with an absolute path, cs-cart lets you enter a url into the csv file and it saves the image to your file system and creates the large/thumb with it. My distributors use data files with links to their images and there’s no way i can add 10k images manually to the shop. A fix / update to the image import would be nice.
